Phonogram: The Singles Club #5 Recalled - Barcode Error!

Collectability: 3 stars Image Comics, October 2009.

This comic was recalled and pulped due to a printing error where the bar-code from issue #4 was inadvertently used:

There are usually one or two of these for sale on ebay so they are certainly not impossible to find but prices have been slowing creeping upwards and they can go for over 10 times the cover price.
